Some Indianapolis city leaders are backing the Freed to Work proposal, which would prohibit hotels and contracting firms from entering into agreements that forbid temporary workers from transitioning into permanent jobs with the hotels. One worker, Martha Hernandez, worked at a Hyatt hotel and the JW Marriott via a staffing firm, Hospitality Staffing Solutions. She did not receive benefits such as holidays or insurance and decided she wanted to get a job directly through a hotel. However, she found she was not allowed to be hired directly. She is now part of a lawsuit against several hotels and the temporary staffing firm.
